Organizer Training

Organizer Training 101

This is the 2012 edition of the Edmonton IWW’s annual Organizer Training course.

This is a two day course on building power in your workplace from the bottom up. It focuses on techniques for building a committee of workers who are confident and capable of addressing issues in the workplace, and for overcoming obstacles like worker apathy, anxiety, and the bosses’ counter-organizing efforts.

The course is free, and is open to everyone – so please forward to anyone who might be interested!

We’re starting at 9am on Saturday the 28th and 10am on Sunday the 29th. There will be a social event Saturday night, and our guest trainer will be doing a speaking event on Friday night.

The location will be announced when it’s finalized, but it will likely be on the University of Alberta campus.

Food will be provided, and child care will be provided if required.

Please RSVP with brendan@diffeq.com
